SPIKE LEE, SPIELBERG, CARPENTER, KUBRICK, DE PALMA
Jordan Peele was interviewed on ABC-TV's live pre-Oscar red carpet show tonight, where the hosts asked him about his inspirations for Get Out. Peele responded by echoing what he said on stage yesterday when Spike Lee presented him with the best director award at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. "Getting this award from Spike is crazy — let's make no mistake, I would not be standing here if it wasn't for this man," Peele said as he looked back toward Lee, who had mentioned that Get Out is a "masterpiece." Tonight on the red carpet, after talking about Lee, Peele added a few more directors' names as inspirations for Get Out: Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, Stanley Kubrick, and Brian De Palma.
